Larvotto Beach gets ready for the summer season

Over the next few weeks, Larvotto Beach will be smoothed out and levelled in preparation for the summer season. The beachfront restaurants and other local businesses will remain open, but swimming will be forbidden for the duration of the works.  

The government says that the project is necessary in order to welcome the thousands of beachgoers who enjoy Larvotto Beach during the summertime “in the best conditions”.  

The sands and gravel base of the beach have been impacted by the storms experienced in the region in recent weeks, making the slope down to the water steeper than usual. Therefore, the beach will be gently levelled to meet requirements.

A set of protective nets will be installed just off the shoreline in a bid to protect the seabed and its flora and fauna from any sediment released during the works. 

The team in charge of the reprofiling project, which will run from 15th April until 3rd May, will be working between the hours of 7.30am and 12pm, and then again from 2pm to 6.30pm. 

 Although swimming will be prohibited for the duration of the works, access to the beach will still be possible, albeit section by section as the project progresses.  

The restaurants and businesses that line the beachfront will remain open.
